Ethereum and Stellar’s Lumen Daily Tech Analysis – 03/12/19

Bob Mason

Ethereum

Ethereum fell by 1.31% on Monday. Following on from a 0.42% decline on Sunday, Ethereum ended the day at $148.97.

Another bearish start to the day saw Ethereum slide from an early morning intraday high $151.65 to a mid-morning intraday low $146.82.

Steering clear of the major resistance levels, Ethereum fell through the first major support level at $147.07.

Finding support in the late morning, Ethereum briefly recovered to $150 levels before sliding back through the first major support level.

Off the back of a late afternoon low $146.91, Ethereum recovered to $149 levels before wrapping up the day at $148 levels.

Whilst closing out the day in the red, a move back through the first major support level was key.

The extended bearish trend, formed at late April 2018’s swing hi $828.97, remained firmly intact. A reversal from June’s current year high $364.49 back through the 23.6% FIB of $257 reaffirmed the extended bearish trend.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was down by 0.01% to $148.96. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning high $150.0 before falling to a low $148.7.

Ethereum left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move back through to $149.2 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $151.47.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from $150 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally on the day, the first major resistance level and Monday high $151.65 would likely limit any upside.

Failure to move through to $149.20 levels could see Ethereum spend a 4th consecutive day in the red.

A fall through to $148.5 levels would bring the first major support level at $146.64 into play before any recovery.

Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$145 levels on the day.

Major Support Level: $146.64

Whilst finding support in the final hour to move back through to $0.05620 levels, Stellar’s Lumen failed to break back through the first major resistance level.

Stellar’s Lumen left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

For the day ahead

Stellar’s Lumen would need to move through to $0.0567 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $0.0573.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Stellar’s Lumen to break through to $0.057 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely limit any upside on the day.

In the event of a breakout, the second major resistance level at $0.0584 would likely come into play.

Failure to move through to $0.0567 levels could see Stellar’s Lumen struggle throughout the day.

A fall back to sub-$0.056 levels would bring the first major support level at $0.0556 into play before any recovery.

The second major support level at $0.0550 would likely limit any downside on the day.
